Depression and anxiety have a big impact on productivity and motivation. Unfortunately, while the signs of these conditions aren’t always obvious, they are extremely common — even among highly successful people. In fact, the same brain circuits that make someone creative, driven, and productive, are often the same circuits that put them at risk for depression and anxiety. Fortunately, a better understanding of neuroscience can help reduce stigma and better deal with these common mental health challenges. Simply by making small changes in your thoughts, actions, interactions, and environment it’s possible to change the activity and chemistry of key brain circuits that contribute to depression and anxiety.
